Namibia Economist (Windhoek)
March 17, 2006
Inmates at the Windhoek Central Prison are set to acquire entrepreneurial skills following a project, inaugurated this week, which focuses on teaching business skills such as compiling business plans, cash flow management, marketing, administrative and financing proficiency.
The government is not alone, said [Minister of Safety and Security Peter] Tsheehama, in the mammoth task of trying to build a crime free nation and there are institutions taking responsibility in the rehabilitation of offenders.
“The re-integrative value attached to this vocational training is very high because the skills development of offenders offers greater opportunities on securing jobs after release. Through this training program, inmates are provided with job related skills, relevant to employment opportunities available in the institutional workshops and communities,” said Tsheehama.
